At the turn of the century, Duke and Chester, two vaudeville performers, go to Alaska to make their fortune. On the ship to Skagway, they find a map to a secret gold mine, which had been stolen by McGurk and Sperry, a couple of thugs. They disguise themselves as McGurk and Sperry to get off the ship. Meanwhile, Sal Van Hoyden is in Alaska to try and recover the map; it had been her father's. She falls in with Ace Larson, who wants to steal the gold mine for himself. Duke and Chester, McGurk and Sperry, Ace and his henchmen, and Sal, chase each other all over the countryside, trying to get the map. Written by

Writers Panama and Frank were having trouble getting the script approved by the 3 main stars, all of whom were prestigious in their own right and wanted the most screen presence. When these group script negotiations broke down, Panama and Frank held individual conferences with each of the stars, explaining how the script would highlight that star (the one being met with at the time) more than the others. This approach worked, and the script was finally approved for filming. See more »

Road to Utopia is a very correct film, not a workmaster but a very interesting and funny film. It's the fifth Crosby film that I have seen and the first Road/Paramount/Crosby film that I have seen. The songs "Personality" and "Would you" by Dorothy Lamour were very good and Bing Crosby was a magician very strange but sensational!!. A fish talks, two bears talk... A mountain in Alaska is the mountain of the Paramount...
A film very incredible.....with a lot of surprises....
